is there anywhere i can get them?
i seem o remember 5 years back i went on this random website and it has TONS of custom shapes for tribes, like a buggy and a missile truck, etc.
I don't think anyone is really carrying shapes specifically, except perhaps for Torque-related sites. You may have some luck finding what you're looking for inside some of the clientside mods. I'm sure there's somewhere around here that still has a few up for download.
man, it was back in 2000, this site had Teibes2Buggy.dts, there was a missile-truck thingy called the "ogre" a "mech" (never tested that one)... too bad those types of sites just don't exist any more...
